When my best friend Katie told me she was departing for South America in September for four months, I knew we needed a serious catch up before she went travelling the world. As a good half way point between me in Milton Keynes, and her in Peterborough, we decided on Y Spa at Wyboston Lakes near St Neots.
Y Spa is about health, wellness and rejuvenation and many of those things rely on pleasure. They work on the principle of pleasure, enjoying a lot of what’s good for you and a little of what you like! And as you’ll already know, I love a good spa break…
The Y Spa facilities include 11 treatment rooms including three double treatment rooms, a private treatment suite, Manicure and Pedicure stations, a rasul, relaxation areas, Big Sleep and a Time Out area. As well as their multiple thermal experiences including a hydrotherapy pool outside on the terrace, kelo sauna, moderate sauna, salt steam room, experience showers and frost wall.
There is also a Spa Café offering the perfect combination of health and pleasure along with a little indulgence thrown in for good measure! Champagne, sparkling wine and draught lager are all available along with a selection of smoothies, tea, coffee and chocolate.
Me and Katie opted for a Stopover Spa break which included, dinner, bed and breakfast. We opted to use the spa on our day of arrival, so when we arrived we checked in and headed for lunch in the restaurant. We dined on vegetable lasagna, salad and an array of yummy puddings. Then once we had finished lunch, we decided to throw on our robes and head to the spa for four hours of access to the thermal spa facilities. The Spa was amazing and we had such a lovely time relaxing in the various rooms, and hydrotherapy. We relaxed outside, bought some champagne and sat in the sunshine.
After an hour in the hydrotherapy pool, me and Katie headed for our Y Spa Soothing Scalp treatment upstairs which we had in a double treatment room. And we ended up giggling far too much as we chucked on our paper granny pants ready for the treatment… the scalp massage was amazing, and the two ladies that did our treatment we great – we just wished it had lasted longer.
As our spa access came to a close we headed back to our room to get ready for dinner. Now, as you all know I am honest with you, and therefore I am going to be honest with you too. Dinner was a bit of a shambles, for a number of reasons….
The service was slow, and despite the menu being lovely, the food just didn’t come up to scratch with the pleasure of the rest of our stay. They also failed to serve me the food I ordered. After I ordered steak rare, it came back twice well-done, which was a real shame. We then had a few problems when it came to our bill, as our food was included in the room package but the drinks weren’t and it simply left us feeling a little disappointed when we left the restaurant that evening for bed.
Despite a disaster dinner, we did enjoy our stay, and I would come back again, but maybe give dinner a pass…
